There are nineteen ap plicants—eight ladies and eleven gen tlemen—the largest number ever be fore the Board at one time. The ma jority of them are old teachers, but they have Just come into ihe county. The Election. The election for Supervisors yester day passed off in a most prosaic and uneventful manner. The saloons were all closed or complied with the provis ions of the statutes by selling no in toxicating liquors. The result of the election was a foregone conclusion, there being but one candidate—Mr. Allen—in the field, and only a small number took interest enough in the matter to cast their votes, as will be seen by the returns which are as fol lows. Los Angeles Precinct No. 1, at the house of J. P. Campbell, polled twenty-four votes, all for Allen. Precinct No. 2, at the Court House polled one hundred and eighty-three votes—Allen, 182; scattering 1. Precinct No. 3 at the house of David Auderson., polled thirty-seven votes, all for Allen. Two other precincts in this town ship are not yet heard from and no re turns havo been made from Boledad Township, but they will not probably change the result of the election. Splendid gents iiuits.

"LOU LEWIS." Correspondents Hauled Over the ConU I.lxht Attendance—Anzloiiit Engi neering— Mnrmurlnsrs nnd Musing*. EDITOR Herald: Nothing daunt ed by the many misfortunes attending our last absence from this little vil lage, we have passed through the toils and perils of a hunt, withalarm ing success and safety. The party was perfection; "present company except ed," of course: In chivalry they could have outwitted a Quixote; in po liteness, a Chesterfield; in bravery, an Alexander; and in fortune —compari- sons fail, and words prove inadequate to the task. Yes, a bright sun and cloudless sky were above us, and even the undemonstrative burros (whose energy we have never seen equaled,) brayed out their joy at our success. And as we all came galloping (?) into tho cafion, mounted on our noble steeds, and ornamented with the quadrupeds and bipeds that dangled from the pommels, who should meet us but Doon—we mean Dumnorix ! HE WAS "HUNTING ITEMS," he said, and the look he gave our items! It was annihilating really; but we stood it, hardened creatures that we were; yet never till our dying day shall we forget that look, so filled with entreaty, with supplication,with disgust! We have searched the Columns of the Express for some evi dence of his outraged feelings; but in vain, and now are sadly fearful as to results. Last Wednesday we paid a flying visit to town, and while there, Mr. Editor, we heard something. Yes, actually heard enough to repay us for all the discomfort attending our little trip. It was just in front of that largo doorway, through which you gain en trance to the City Library, that the hearing took place. There stood "Corry" and one of "the good girls," both grinning, and evidently well pleased with each other. Both wore eye-glasses, the colors of which struck us as being peculiarly typical of the wearers; hers being green, and his, no color at all. He was making frantic endeavors to get an article on Santa Monica, for tlie Star, but she, cruel girl, would not promise. "No Corry, 1 have too much respect for the noble, high-souled Editor of the Star to at tempt anything so— BUT WE HEARD NO MORS. One glance at Corry's face, already death-like in hue, revived our droop ing senses, and we fled; fled in dismay at Corry's indiscretion. Corry, my boy, listen to us, for we doubt not that we are your superior in age and expe rience, and have your interest at heart: Never press your suits in public. Our number of callers last Sunday was unusually small,but tho quality made up for the quantity. Mr. Editor, will you tell us-what in tlie world makes city people so smart? Givo ns the recipe, we pray you, and let US try it. We were paying our devoirs to the occupant of the Double Cliff, chatting away with a spirit free of care, when our little tete a tete was disturbed. We listened; it was a voice. Yes, wo could not mistake it; no blonde ever uttered such words of fire; some brunette was holding forth. We are blunt, obtuse, dull of compre hension, indeed. Wo can't find the point, but there is one, we know, for he said so. We submit it in full to you, Mr. Editor, and trust that your acuteness will solve the mystery. Here it is, as he gave it: "VAT'S DE DIFFERENCE MIT A LADY AND A VATCH ?" We threw a bottle of ammonia over "Zoe," followed by a keg of spirits (kept for that especial purpose), yet daylight waned and daylight dawned ere resuscitation was produced. The only thing we have to lament is the loss of—of our spirits, though taking into consideration the object to which they were sacrificed, we are comforted. Quite a number of campers have pulled up stakes, and, like the swal lows, "homeward flown." Some old fogy remarked to us, "It'B too bad you are not so sensible." Perhaps it is, St. E—, and before another moon comes to tempt us with its luring rays we shall act upon your common-sense remark, and be gone. Last evening, wearied with the unusual cares of the day, we gath ered up our favorite poet, said "an revolt" to camp and surroundings and wended our way up the unfrequented path known, we believe, as Lovers' Lane, though why it is so styled, we can't imagine. Surely, nothing occurred during our walk to suggest any such nonsensical title. But Santa Monica, like every other place, has its weak sides, and we suppose this is one of then?. Once in the shade of the sycamores, wooed by the gentle winds that came sighing through tlie trees and soothed by the carroling of birds, whose songs seemed but echoes from the skies, we forgot all our sorrows, and thought witli tho poet, whose works still lay unopened in our hands, that— " Thoro Is a pleasure in ihe pathless wuoJlf— There is a rapture ou the lonely shore- There is society, Where none intrudes, By the deep sea, and music in Its roar." But, as the shades of night with mellowed softness came creeping in upon us, we quitted our usual neat and turned our steps campward, well sat isfied that Nature is a gentle nurse, on whoso bosom we may ever find rest and quiet. Ball! that wind has blown our can dle out, and we have nothing where with to re-light it. Yes, wo are writ ing by the sense of feeling, not hear ing, 'it's anything but pleasant; so "good-bye," till our next. Yours) Lou Lewis. I*. S.—Won't you ask " Zoe Zella " to please come to us, and take a spell ing lesson? We will teach her how to spell our name. L, L, [Written for the HERALD.] BENEATH THE CLOUDS. O, the el ou lis that hang above me! I can never pierce their gloom. All the worbi Is wrapped In d:irknP3s, Like the shadows of the tomb. Piles on piles of horror drifted— Not a ray of light between; Will the clouds no more be lifted, Nor the cleur blue sky be secuT Darkness like a cloud enwraps me, And my trembling hands I tmm% Seeking for a guiding ungel Who can light these dreary ways. Bitter winds are blowing round me, Chilling to my very heart; Moaning shrieks and sobs confound me, • Of my terror each a part. Nearer now they drive, and nearer- Tokens of a mighty wrnth; Blinded eyes can now no longer Trace the semblance of a path. 1 havo wept, repented, fasted, Since I breathed this stifling air- Till my life und hopes are blasted; •' Father, hear mc!" is my prayer. —1.1 ST A.

Tlie Governor of Oregon has receiv ed the following letter, and as the readiest way to reach the wishes of his correspondent, has ordered its pub lication: "Sir: —A lady unacquainted in your State wishes an acquaintance with some respectable gentleman by correspondence—a bachelor preferred. This lady can give tlie best of refer ence. Please, sir, if you can inform this lady of such an acquaintance, you will have her sincere thanks. Ad dress, M. K. S. R., Wolcottville, In diana—Box 30." Nevada Items. Ross Lowers of Washoe Valley has on his ranch an apricot tree which this year bore over three hundred pounds of fruit of a superior quality.

The present daily yield of the liveli er mine is 550 tons of ore, of the Crown Point 500 tons, and of tlie Consolidated Virginia 300, making a total of 1,350 tons of ore from the three leading Comstock mines. In addition, the Chollar-Potosi produces daily 100 tons, the Sierra Nevada 00 tons and the Hale & Norcross 30 tons, making an aggregate of 1,500 tons from the seven mines.

Logan ami Johnson, who have been developing a copper mine in the East Range, arrived in town last Sundny from the field of their labors, well pleased with their prospects. The vein is about four feet thick, and the ore it contains carries about forty per cent, copper. Their claim is situated in Inskip canon, 18 miles north of Unionville." The Austin Reveille of August 25th saps: "An emigrant outfit, consisting of two wagons, one man, two women, a band of children, and dilapidated looking cayuses passed through the town to-day, en route from Pueblo, Colorado, to Stockton, California. The whole outfit looked terribly used up from their long journey over the mountains and alkali deserts. Tlie man informed us that his name was Banta; and he was ' the fellow who started Banta's Station, if we knowed where that was.' He further statetl that he had been 'slosnin' round among them thar Territories,' and he wanted to get back again among ' the old forty-nine boys.' " Pacific Coast Items.
